Outrage!

Earth First! activist David "Gypsy" Chain, age 24, was murdered Sept. 17, 1998 by a logger cutting an illegal Pacific Lumber logging operation in Northern California's Headwaters Forest.

Listen to the enraged logger A.E. Ammons as he was captured on video tape making threats just before he killed the young activist.

  • On October 22, the hideous Humboldt County Sheriffs Dept. made an official recommendation that David's fellow Earth First! activists, and not the logger, be charged with the MANSLAUGHTER! OF DAVID CHAIN

  • Instead, on December 17, the Incompetent Humboldt Co. District Attorney let the KILLER LOGGER WALK FREE!

  • Ten days later, without deterrence, a crazed anti-enviro MOB demolished a tree-sitter's car in a murderous clubbing frenzy! (December 27, 1998)

  • THIS IS THE SAME PATTERN OF ABSOLUTE UNENFORCEMENT OF HATE CRIME LAWS THAT PRECEDED THE 1990 BOMBING OF REDWOOD SUMMER ORGANIZER JUDI BARI!

  • HELP US DEMAND FOR INDEPENDENT STATE, FEDERAL, AND UNITED NATIONS INVESTIGATIONS OF DAVID CHAIN'S MURDER AND GOVERNMENT-SANCTIONED HUMBOLDT CO. HATE CRIMES BEFORE SOMEONE ELSE IS MURDERED! And so the violence continues...


  • David Chain's Aunt Has Created a Beautiful Family Tribute Web Site for Gypsy!
